It documents various themes in the sub-disciplines of family demography. The first section of the book focuses on philosophical understanding of African family, its theoretical perspectives, and comparative analysis of family in the 20th and 21st centuries. The second section covers family formation, union dissolution, emerging trend in single parenthood, and adolescents in the family. The following section describes types, determinants and consequences of African family changes: health, childbearing, youth development, teen pregnancy and family violence and the last chapter provides systematic evidence on existing laws and policies governing African family structure and dynamics. As such it illustrates the importance of family demography in African demographic discourse and will be an interesting read to scholars and students in the field of demography, social workers, policy makers, departments of Social Development in countries in Africa and relevant international agencies and all those interested in understanding the African family trajectory.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:description<\/a> \"Introduction : Clifford Odimegwu -- Chapter 2: Family Demography In Sub-Saharan Africa: Systematic Review Of Family Research: Clifford Odimegwu, Nicole De Wet, Sunday Adedini and Sathiyasusuman Appunni -- Chapter 3: Justice, The \'African Family\' And Obligations: Edwin Etieyibo -- Chapter 4: Theoretical Perspectives On Family Research: Ntoimo Lorretta Favour C.
